Newsletter: The Falling Stars Challenge—Social Media Makes the World More Equal

Recently on Chinese social media, people from all walks of life posted pictures of themselves “accidentally falling down” next to their most valuable possessions as to show off their wealth. What people chose to flaunt are far beyond your imagination.

Two months ago, Bullet messenger, the messaging tool that was said to be a strong competitor of WeChat, quickly topped the Chinese free download list on Apple’s App Store. However, now it proves the downloading craze is just a flash in the pan. The app is now quickly cooling off as its parent company Smartisan is also rumored to face financial challenges.

With the upcoming double 11 shopping festival, Alibaba‘s logistics arm Cainiao, together with its logistics partners, are going to use the Sky Eye Program, a cloud-based video-monitoring system to meet the huge logistics demand.

On October 30th, OnePlus just unveiled the company’s newest flagship device, the OnePlus 6T, at its New York launch event named “Unlock the Speed”.
